September 26th, 2016,  (Los Angeles, CA) - Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez joined with Governor Jerry Brown and Assemblymember Christina Garcia for the signing of AB 2153, legislation that provides funding to clean up the contamination caused by Excide. Gomez praised Assemblymember Garcia for introducing the legislation, which is emblematic of the greater push by the legislature to make ‘environmental justice’ a core California value. The goal is to bridge the so-called green divide between wealthier communities and low income communities that has allowed issues of environmental justice in low income communities to be overlooked.
